Apple releases iOS 10 - here are all the devices that can upgrade

Last week, Apple unveiled the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, featuring improved performance, all-new cameras, as well as dust- and water-resistance, although they also lack a dedicated headphone jack. The new handsets will be the first to come with iOS 10 pre-installed.

Apple describes the new version as its "biggest iOS release ever", bringing a wide range of improvements and additional features to its devices. You can find out about some of them in our iOS 10 hands-on from earlier this year.
